Topshop Lip Crayon - Secret Party

I'd never bought a Topshop Lip Crayon before.  Everyone raves about their lip products, but having bought Whimsical lipstick and finding it odd to apply I'd steered clear.  That, and the fact that this looks a lot like my NARS Bolero which was an absolute disaster and misguided purchase.  Either way, I just figured that these weren't for me.

I can safely say my opinion has been well and truly changed.

It was the colour of this lip crayon which sucked me in at first.  It's a beautiful raspberry pink shot through with pink glitter.  No, I'm not 7 years old, but for some reason the idea of a glittery lipstick got me excited.  The glitter looks amazing in pencil form, but actually applies nicely to the lips as well.

Now onto the consistency.  Whimsical was drying and strange, this is a dream.  It's glossy and creamy and feels like a lipstick.  It does feel slightly tacky on the lips, but I assume this is down to the shiny finish you get.  I got a good few hours wear out of this - perhaps this would have been more had I not been eating.  It wore off nicely as well.

I'm completely sold on the Topshop Lip Crayons...I want them all!

  4. I have a few Topshop lipsticks which I really like but bought Whimsical for my summer ball last year and, as you say, it was very strange and VERY drying which put me off the range as a whole a little. This crayon looks like great fun though.

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I've had one occasion where Whimsical applied nicely, but on the whole it's pretty patchy and no matter how much I apply it it never gives a smooth and even coat! x
